On May 31, the second seminar on defining future scientific directions was held at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology. The seminar featured a report by Ismail Zulfugarov, head of the International Proteomics Laboratory of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnologies, a research professor at Busan National University in South Korea. He noted that understanding how cells and tissues make anatomical decisions is important not only to achieve complex regenerative results but also to solve issues such as cancer treatment. Although cancer is still considered a genetic disease by clinical approaches, recent research suggests that in cancer the reception of physiological signals that strictly control the anatomical homeostasis of cells does not occur. In cancer, individual cells return to the ancient unicellular lifestyle and perceive the rest of the body as an external environment. I. Zulfugarov emphasized the importance of multidisciplinary research in this area. At the end of the seminar, extensive discussions were held on the topic.
